    of course, i've been away and i've just learned that the challenge and jam series have been fairly defunct as of late...

    c'est la vie

    in any case, i did this, my first playing on the new thing - sort of a one and done kind of approach - winging it, in other words.

    Great to see you back Monte!

    Imagine, if you will, a quiet beach, dusk approaching and a couple of drinks inside you...
    You find a swing to sit and contemplate life and all it's quirks and pleasures....

    sensitive and introspective... that subtle slack key thing going on in the back is very nice. and i envy your smooth touch.

    nice right out of the gate. great tone - fits the 80s R&B vibe like a glove. you always say you can't play! LO frikkin L! - i love your playing

    The name is a sailing reference based on today's activities, not a musical cover.

    Thanks for resurrecting this! And yourself!

    I was also in need of resurrection. The miraculous is starting to become mundane...

    @montemerrick Sweet and laid back with a great tone. You sounded a bit tense first 30 seconds then the music just started flowing.

    @s5tuart great tone! Those sound like melancholical contemplations. I like how it feels like you're drifting in and out, catching the ride as it happens.

    @Raimonds Great as usual! You have your usual way of mixing slow passage with fast flurries, I really like that. It's melodic and sweet withva great tone.

    @knh555 In your hands this turned into something breezy and almost joyful. Great job on the backikg parts too, they really fit.

    @Relaxing at Cam There's a bit of a dark mood to your take and it's not just in the tone. It's all complemented by your restrain. I like it a lot!

    @alainvey As usual it sounds effortless and relaxed. Sometimes I get associations to something completely different when I hear music. You brought on Jonathan Livingston Seagull.
